Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Hermiston, OR - Nov 20, 2017 - Timothy Merritt, a career military man who has spent over twenty-eight years as both an enlisted soldier and as a commissioned officer in the Oregon Army National Guard, has completed his new book “Guard Against the Storm”: a command performance of a man who coordinated efforts between numerous local, state, and government agencies to rescue and protect in the aftermath of one of the largest natural disasters in American history.
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Timothy Merritt’s book details the relief efforts of Brigadier General Douglas A. Pritt during the aftermath and devastation of Hurricane Katrina in the infamous Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. From the unique and inside perspective of the general’s aide-de-camp comes the story of the National Guard response to the greatest natural disaster in American history.
In “Guard Against the Storm”, General Pritt demonstrates his remarkable leadership and success during Hurricane Katrina and is subsequently selected to lead the massive and complex response to Hurricane Rita, the largest military operation on US soil since the Civil War. This story is about the struggles and triumphs of America’s citizen-soldiers and it explores the true nature of joint local, state, and federal cooperation between civilian and military forces during times of severe crisis.
